production design, set build, & stop-motion puppet creation by me
- a short film about a girl who lives inside a garden she's built in her mind, until a butterfly emerges from it to tell her that her garden is fake.
The "garden" set begins as a soporific and suffocating two-dimensional wall of overgrowing flowers, that then practically transforms into a three-dimensional tunnel for the characters to escape.
"Butterfly" also incorporates stop-motion puppetry of the butterfly.
This film is currently in post-production.
